Surf's Up

We all know that when Ayden Jane gets an idea in her head...  You just have to let her run with it.  Over the weekend she saw a friend her age up on a surfboard.  The seed was planted.  Today when Gary woke up Ayden Jane ran to him and before he even really had a chance to become conscious she was informing him that he needed to take her to the beach and teach her to surf. 
Like I said, you just have to go with it when she gets an idea in her head!  Now, Gary has never surfed a day in his life and they took Mckenna's board which is a great board to practice on as a kid who is just starting, but not an easy board for a total beginner.  Not that any of that was going to stop Ayden Jane!  Gary had her climb up, pop up to a squat and then stand while he steadied the board.  It was pretty cool.  She didn't ride the wave far, but in her mind she was surfing and that's all that mattered!
 I'd say she rocked it for a 5 year old, let alone a 5 year old with PWS!
